Ron Arad was born in 1951 in Tel Aviv into an artistic family - his mother is a painter, his father a photographer. He attended the Academy of Art in Jerusalem until the early 1970s, when he decided to leave Israel and study architecture in the UK. Settling in London in 1974, he enrolled at the city's least conventional school, the Architectural Association, where he studied under Peter Cool and Bernard Tschumi with classmates like Nigel Coates, Peter Wilson and Zaka Hadid. He quickly developed artistic and cultural interests outside architecture, and his work became increasingly oriented towards design and non-rhetorical artistic uses of materials. In 1981, with Dennis Groves and Caroline Thorman, he set up One Off, the design agency that made its successful debut with a set of tubular steel furniture. Arad has made no secret of his predilection for technology and the modern aesthetic as ways of revisiting and revising typologies from the past. As a sculptor and craftsman who has taught himself to cut sheet steel, bend wooden legs and put bent plywood to new sculptural uses, he has produced furniture that is emotional and sensual as well as aggressively light and practical. A similar philosophy is evident in his designs for the futuristic foyer of the Opera House in Tel Aviv, the Belgo restaurant in London, the installations for "L'Esprit du Nomade", Fondation Cartier in Paris, the impressive project of Adidas Stadium in Paris, the Domus Totem for the Triennale in Milan, the exclusive Yohji Yamamoto's Store in Tokyo, the Design Museum in Holon, Israel.

Kartell Infinity Bottle Holder

Love that it adjustable
Theresa from California– Verified Buyer
At first it was challenging to put together, but I got it figured out. I happen to have a built in cabinet that is in a cool place in my home and this works well in that space. It doesn't seem to be all that strong. But it is strong enough. I have other things by the brand Kartell and I really love all of their designs and their products hold up really well.
Beauty and organization
Mary C from Bay Area
These are easy to assemble and helped turn a spare refrig into a well organized wine cooler. They are a bit pricey but well made and give you complete flexibility to utilize your space to the max.
Very functional bottle holder
Sandra Summers from Durham
I have now bought two sets of this bottle holder it is fun to put it together in different formations and then arrange bottles in it. It adds a very modernist, artistic look to our kitchen. The quality is very high assembly is easy enough -- like Legos for grown-ups. I can highly recommend this item.

I knew it wasn't going to be anything amazing, but the plastic feels pretty cheap. This was also VERY difficult to assemble and I had to use a mallet to get the pieces to fit correctly.
